Christmas (Sunday, 2010 December 26)

December 26, 2010

We deep fried an avocado, among other things, and as we were lifting our glasses to a toast, we managed: "To surviving the holidays!" So far so good.

It still doesn’t feel like Christmas; it’s still tropical, you still sweat walking up a hill. But to the Cameroonians, it’s definitely time to fête! We spent the day with the traditional chef here, who we affectionately refer to as "Papa Chef", mostly eating and drinking. Today we spent in bed watching MacGyver. So it’s been a kind of vacation for us, and I’m getting to the point where I’d like to be doing something useful. Back to post tomorrow — gotta do laundry and dry up in time for New Year’s.
